#LetNYCdance: Tell City Council "Repeal the Cabaret Law"

Click the map for your Council Member's phone number

Call your City Council Member and say "Repeal the Cabaret Law."

End NYC's jazz-era ban on dancing. The Cabaret Law requires a permit for dancing. There are only 88 licensed spaces in NYC. The criminalization and shutdown of spaces pushes our communities "underground" and into unsafe environments.

In order to repeal the Cabaret Law, we need to join forces all across NYC with everyone who likes to dance. 

Would you help us reach out to the world's funnest people? Let us know, email contact@nycartc.com.
